chances of surviving impact at 30 miles per hour is one in two, your chance of surviving impact at 20 miles per hour is 85 out of hundred so your odds go up when you reduce the impact from 30 down to 20 miles an hour. this will be talked about today here in san jose in front of the rules committee. just about 5:33. developing news, a statewide amber alert has been cancelled in the past 30 minutes for a missing 13-year-old girl from hollister. chp says the girl, christina ramirez was found safe in san bernardino just before 5:00 this morning. she was reported missing yesterday afternoon. authorities say they found her with her father, 34-year-old marcelino ramirez. he has been taken into custody. >> the one-year anniversary of the deadly pipeline explosion
